Eric Walker | Getting cogy

Ella plays in and on the bed all the time. She plays with her stuffed animals. She plays with her Barbies. She plays under the blankets, and she stuffs herself in the pillows. She likes tunneling deep under the blankets with me. We laugh, and giggle. She likes to be “nakey.” We also play a game called Big Jumpin’ With Turn Arounds. That’s where Ella jumps as high and as hard as she can with her legs. As she does, I get behind her and spin her 180 degrees at a time. She loves it so much that it wears me out. Here in this picture, Ella is getting “cogy.” She couldn’t pronounce the “z” in cozy for the longest time. It came out with a “g” sound (as in giraffe).
